|The Kufi – A Prayer Time Essential
A kufi (also known as taqiya in Arabic, peci in Indonesian and take in Turkish) is a brimless, short and
rounded cap that Muslim men wear. The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) wore a kufi. You will find that many
Muslims wear these caps not only during prayer but most of the day as well. The significance of this is
affirmation of the belief that Allah is present everywhere. Covering the head is a sign of humility before
Wearing a kufi has many benefits. When worn during prayer, it helps to prevent the hair from falling
down on one’s face and disturbing concentration when praying. When worn in general, kufis help
distinguish you from others and serve as a reminder to exhibit exemplary behavior in every situation.
There are many different styles of kufis hats or skull caps. While some are simple white caps with no
brims, others are a bit boxy. Some even look like hairnets. These are often made of pure, plain cotton.
Some are embroidered. Kufis tend to have a round shape (although some are oval), and they are
available in a variety of colors.
The kufi comes in various styles to suit your mood, style and outfit. Some are warmer than others, and
favor certain climates. You may choose to go with embroidered kufis or those that look like skull caps
or beanies. You could opt for those that are machine made or crocheted by hand. Some kufis have a
hard shell surface, while others are soft and sit well on the forehead. There are even unique kufis made
from macramé mesh!
